Nutrition Education Series

Cancer treatment often affects a person’s eating habits and nutritional needs.  Although it is important for people with cancer to maintain a healthy body weight and eat nutritious foods, the side effects of treatment may cause a person to eat less and lose weight.  On the other hand, some treatments may cause weight gain.  Cancer treatment often causes side effects, such as nausea, mouth sores, and taste changes that make it difficult to eat or drink.

Jan Halligan, RD, LD, CDE with Baxter Regional Medical Center will discuss nutritional needs of cancer patients before, during & after treatment.  Coping with treatment related side effects related to our appetite and nutrition will also be discussed. 

Seating is limited–Please call (870)508-2273 to register

PSCH Exercise Programs

Regular Exercise can help to ease some side effects of treatment, such as fatigue. Exercise can improve your ability to complete normal activities of daily, lower the risk of anxiety or depression, and improve your quality of life. Exercise is also beneficial in reducing cancer recurrence. There are two exercise programs offered free of charge to anyone diagnosed with cancer through the Peitz Cancer Support House. As in any exercise program, please consult your physician before beginning. Don’t let cancer slow you down.
